Midlands Technical Centre employees


The Midlands Technical Centre (MTC) office in Leamington Spa is home to our team of over 350 friendly and sociable employees.  The site is split across 3 buildings and includes workshop, NVH and test cell facilities. Our skilled employees include Machinists, Chief Engineers, Design teams and Programme Managers, amongst many. 

At MTC, we have a social committee who organise monthly activities for employees. Employees also socialise during lunch times and our onsite shower facilities enable people to exercise during breaks. We even have Badminton nets on lawned areas during the warmer months. Our annual events include Christmas Parties, Bonfire and Firework displays and a more recent addition was the children’s pantomime. MTC is fortunate to have a group on site who organise badminton, squash and football teams that meet weekly for games. MTC have regular quiz nights (which can be very competitive) and, on the odd occasion, a pub games night. Smaller groups include the Cake Wednesday club and also a band!
